Review: Kiss and Make Up (Diary of a Crush) by Sarra Manning


Edie's having major boy issues. Trying to get over Dylan is hard, but snogging new boy Carter isn't hurting...


When everyone heads off to a summer festival, Edie wants to forget her troubles and try and have fun. But she didn't count on her leftover feelings for Dylan and now she's all churned up again. Edie's got some big decisions to make, but is she ready to kiss and make up?




5 Words: Obsessive, psycho, growing-up, toxic, angst-y.


Oh Edie, what has happened to you? You're just not the same girl any more. I liked you more when I was younger.

This whole series is basically a re-read of my teenage years. I couldn't resist those gorgeous new covers.

This is still fluffy and fun, but Edie is all kinds of stalker-obsessive-psycho and it's scary. As this book is written as her diary it's a crazy-mad ride. And it was just too much for me. Edie is relentless in her pursuit of Dylan. Dylan is a Grade A dick. Dylan's new girlfriend Veronique is only slightly more bat-shit than Edie. And Veronique's brother Carter is as toxic as they come.

If you like toxic, poisonous relationships then look no further as this book has them in spades. I guess that's why I can't stop reading this series.

This is a guilty pleasure read for me. Sarra Manning will always be the Queen of Teen to me. When I was the same age as the protagonist I related much more to her. But now that I'm a lot older I just don't get it.

But hey, we do crazy things in the name of love.
